A Prayer to Rise Above


As I lay me down to sleep

Trading one nightmare for another

I pray the world for peace to keep

I fear I’ll wake to a world torn asunder

For bonds to break and souls fly free

With cages locked and neighbors turned against me

To not bow down to a winter of despair

Look to the window- Shouldn’t snow or ashes fall?

To fight away hopelessness from the air

There is no sense in this at all

I pray for strength, to not stand alone

Oh, but don’t forget the strength we have shown

One and one, each together, saved by the bloom of our love

Stand by my side and we will rise above
